Round 4

Usyk is recalibrating his right jab every time Fa ducks, bends or swerves. Fa is trying to peel away from Usyk and keep him at the end of his left jab. Usyk takes on a maniacal grimace as he crouch-walks in and pokes the body of Fa, mixing in some rocket lefts to the jaw. Fa desperately throws his body weight into the 1-2 from outside after taking a couple of backward set-up paces, but Usyk just cases it and submarines beneath to keep getting closer. No breathing room for Fa.

10-9 Usyk

40-36 Usyk

Good job from Fa to recover in the 4th moving and throwing his right more often to keep Usyk from getting inside as much, still had him losing the round thoough

Usyk seems like a likeable guy.

But he really does not impress... oh well.

Round 5

Usyk is working his way in, holding the right all the way out, stepping through to ramrod with it as a rapier jab and then slightly folding his elbow and waving out to hook. Everything is concentrated towards getting Usyk inside. Meanwhile all of Fa's efforts have the opposite intended effect. Fa is pushing out with both arms against Usyk, and popping jabs from his sides. Fa lacks the energy to keep his hands up when Usyk isn't right on top of him. Fa is exhaling sharply through his mouth, and may not be able to inhale through his bleeding nose. Usyk keeps pressuring him. Fa tries to rally, throwing several unanswered straights in combo - all thudding against Usyk's arms. Usyk keeps harassing him, not landing very cleanly but snatching at his body and staying under his straight punches, frustrating Fa.

10-9 Usyk

50-45 Usyk

Usyk is a bit too arrogant. His punches don't seem to carry much power at this weight.

I was more impressed with him during the olympic games.

I haven't seen a lot of him, but under these rules they perform very different, and Usyk was a let down in comparison to what he's done earlier on in 2012.

Maybe Fa is just durable? He is a Pacific Islander...

Usyk turns it up in the 5th. Real good debut.

Fa is a solid SHW who could compete with the elite guys (although would be unlikely to win) and Usyk handled him without any trouble and overwhelmed him at times. Im interested in seeing him against someone like Hrgovic or Pfeifer now.

Fa was turning his back to him in round 3 when Usyk was really going after him and while Fa wasn't hurt he clearly felt Usyk's power especially in the 3rd and 5th.
